The following list of tasks are based on what seems to be most logical to work on in the short term to push Catalyst forward and make positive change. If you believe there is something more impactful that makes more sense to work in the short term please feel free to reach out with your thoughts.

Current priorities

​

1. Funding categorisation & contributor funding model

​

2. Catalyst product development

  • Catalyst community priority and proposal supply dynamics - Analysis can be made on the community priority and proposal supply dynamics that exist in Catalyst that change each funding round. Priorities comes from what the community wants to see proposals for such as from setting goals and objectives, supply comes from the proposals that are submitted to cater for that demand or that tries to create its own demand.
  • The importance of standards - Analysis covering why standards are important for project catalyst and how they can lead to interoperable systems with a wider number of different applications as the ecosystem grows.
​

3. Ongoing work

  • Push for funding categorisation changes - There is a change proposal shared with IOG to change how funding categorisation is done in Catalyst.
  • Push for change with the need for a contributor funding model - There is a change proposal I have shared with IOG to push for introducing a contributor funding model to support and improvement the Catalyst ecosystem.
  • Catalyst product development roadmap - Iterate the Catalyst product development roadmap prioritisation items with community feedback in working groups and after town halls to better understand what areas of work need to be completed.
  • Catalyst Circle communication - Collaborate more with what is happening in Catalyst Circle and share recent work completed.
​

4. Future areas of focus

  • Proposal standards - Start looking at defining what makes a good proposal and what a suitable data structure could be with what information should be captured and what technology can be used now and in the future to improve those standards.
  • Working structures & processes - Analyse how the community who are working on Catalyst can most effectively collaborate and work together using certain tools, processes and governance approaches and be efficient in delivering high quality outcomes.
